Configuring the Junos OS to Enable Channelization on DS3/E3 MIC

 

By default, the DS3/E3 MIC functions in clear-channel mode. To enable the DS3/E3 MIC to function in channelized mode, you need to use the software license S-MIC-3D-8CHDS3. To enable channelization, set the channelization statement at the [edit chassis fpc MPC-slot-number pic MIC-slot-number] hierarchy level. You can use the channelization option to channelize only individual DS3 interfaces.

Note
  • You can configure the channelization statement to enable channelization for the DS3/E3 MIC only. Moreover, you can use the channelization statement only on MX Series routers with Queuing and Enhanced Queuing MPCs (MX-MPC1-3D-Q, MX-MPC2-3D-Q, and MX-MPC2-3D-EQ) or on MX80 routers. Configuring the channelization statement on other MPCs does not have any effect, and the MICs continue to operate in clear-channel mode.

  • Only clear-channel E3 mode is supported on the DS3/E3 MIC. Therefore, configuring the channelization statement does not impact the E3 functionality.

To configure channelization on the DS3/E3 MIC:

  1. At the [edit chassis] hierarchy level in configuration mode, navigate to the hierarchy level that indicates the slot on which the DS3/E3 MIC is located.

    For example, to navigate to the [edit chassis fpc 1 pic 2] hierarchy level:

  2. Configure the channelization statement.

    For example:

  3. Verify the configuration by using the show command at the [edit chassis] hierarchy level:

To enable the DS3/E3 MIC to function in clear-channel mode, you need to disable channelization. To do this, delete the channelization option at the [chassis fpc MPC-slot-number pic MIC-slot-number] hierarchy level.

To disable channelization on the DS3/E3 MIC:

  1. At the [edit chassis] hierarchy level in configuration mode, navigate to the hierarchy level that indicates the slot on which the DS3/E3 MIC is located.

    For example:

  2. Delete the channelization statement.
